HiVoltg12- I clean my car by removing the engine and radio tray. Then hoseing it off with Simple Green and water. Just make sure you blow it off very good after cleaning. I don't use WD40 because it makes the car look good, but attracts more dust the next time you are at the track. Then just put a drop of bearing in the CV joints.

givemeshine- What's the actual problem you are having? The GRP engine should fit in the 8ight with no problems.

tharris1959- The castor block have an option hole and have more steering throw.

ABURTON- Great job Alan!

bustedpiecesrc- Yes, you want to point the tempgun at the plug.

Chris__RC- I run two alum with gold springs and two plastic with green springs. If you are looking to get longer shoe life run green and black springs.

jbergman- You may have a set of turnbuckles that are a little undersized. Please give Bill Goldsmith a call in customer service and he can get you a new set. Bill's ext. is 300.

l3asher- Feel free to ask any questions about the 8ight T 2.0 here.

losi_racer- How much fuel have you run through the engine? Sounds like you are trying to get too much out of the engine to soon. What pipe, plug, fuel, ect...

Adam what do you think of the new 8-t 2.0? Is the handling of the truck a big improvement?

+1 , O.S. plugs don`t work well in other engines as the length and taper is different .

and they are a HOTT plug toboot.....GRP's/Ninja's prefer a cooler plug from what ive experienced....they just take a couple min to warm up.

believe me, the OS plugs work PERFECTLY in a GRP! I run them exclusively as I feel the engine makes more bottom end with a OS P4 plug plus it idles slightly better. ALLOT of the Team Losi guys run OS plugs as well.

No issues with sealing or anything else.
